Sakura La An occupies the renovated top floor of a 50-year-old retro building dating back to 1964, the year of the Tokyo Olympics.

Our common area has a sunny terrace and garden, where guests can help themselves to coffee or green tea and enjoy our small library of books on Japanese art, architecture, pottery, tea ceremony (chanoyu), traditional kaiseki meals, and other traditional arts and crafts. Cultural experience programs for tea ceremony, kimono-dressing, and calligraphy are available (additional fees apply). A combined kimono-dressing and tea ceremony program is offered in our tranquil tatami-floored tearoom.

Sakura La An is more than just a place to sleep – it is ready to ensure that your stay is fun-filled and memorable. We look forward to ichigo ichie (一期一会) - the central concept of the tea ceremony, meaning“a once in a lifetime encounter”– and welcoming you to Osaka. View House Rules

    I loved my stay at this hostel. I stayed for a week for a national exam offered in Osaka (Pearson VUE). Yay... I passed! It’s was a relaxing atmosphere in the lounge to read / study during the day and yet exciting evenings options surrounding the hostel. The staff were genuinely friendly and the cleanliness was excellent! Thank you Sakura La An !

    Had a great 3-night stay at the hostel. The staffs were really friendly and everything was great. The hostel is really clean and very cozy! The subway station (Minami Morinachi) is really near to the hostel with just 5 minutes walk. There’s also a market near to the hostel with varieties of goods and foods as well as convenient stores. Will be back again for sure! :)

    As soon as I arrived at Sakura La An I felt very comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Especially the tea ceremony was very nice and we had good conversations every evening . I found good friends here. The staff had good tips for sights and I learned a lot about Japan. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The shared rooms felt like a living room at home. The location was excellent to get around Osaka and I would come back again on my next trip to Japan.

    Had a great stay here! You are very close to a train station which made getting around easy. The tea ceremony was amazing. Normally you have to pay genuine money to see that kind if thing but not only was it free, it made meeting people really easy (which as a solo traveller I loved). Place was clean and the staff were awesome! Definitely recommend staying here!
